NEPTUNE BEACH, Fla. --  Meg Nicewanner is not giving up.

She has hung 200 flyers around Neptune and Jacksonville Beach, all in search of her dog Daisy.

"The gate was opened and she ran and took off," said Meg.

Daisy got out while Meg and her husband were at a friends house near the beaches.  Daisy is more than just a pet to Meg. Daisy belonged to Meg's mother who died of cancer in April.

"My mom just loved her. She [Daisy] got her through some really tough times. She had problems with her hips and Daisy helped. She really was a service dog even though she was never certified," tells Meg.

So for Meg, losing Daisy is like losing one of the last ties to her mom. She says neighbors near Jarboe Park in Neptune Beach have told her they have seen Daisy in the area, but haven't been able to catch her yet.

So Meg and her husband are offering a reward and are going to keep searching and papering the beaches with fliers until Daisy is found.

"She is my rock," Meg said with tears in her eyes.

If you do find Daisy you are asked to return her to the nearest animal shelter because she has a micro-chip that can help identify her.
